The Hottest Ticket...

So... here it is... my Melt Art Masterpiece! Created for Ranger's annual CHA Trade Show challenge, we had to utilize the line of Melt Art products to fashion a project using a 10" x 10" wood surface and a giant ticket shape. Right away I thought of making the ticket into an Animal Crackers box... with the buttery sweet cookies spilling out!
I collaged the ticket with papers and ephemera, then added the flap using cardstock. A circus tent was a must for the box... and I highlighted it with Gold Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE)... using an Embossing Pen to draw the outlines... as well as to highlight some additional areas. I double-embossed chipboard letters with Red Poppy UTEE, spelling out "Crackers". The background was painted with a wash of red acrylic paint, then stamped and embossed with the flourish-y pattern using Red Poppy to bring everything together.
And my very favorite Melt Art product—Mold-n-Pour—is what I used to make molds of the checker (for the wheels) and the Animal Crackers! In the Melting Pot, I mixed a combination of Clear UTEE, with a smidge of White UTEE and then added Yellow To Dye For with a little bit of blue and red to make the perfect cookie color!

A LOT of Animal Crackers were eaten during this creative process! I'm going to go work out now!
